The international event, which in recent years has taken place in Paris, Barcelona, Milan, Munich and Amsterdam, is returning to ExCeL London next April.
During research which was conducted with in-cosmetics visitors and exhibitors, London’s appeal resonated and the capital emerged as the destination of choice. Given the global reach of the show (63% of the in-cosmetics audience in 2016 was made up of international visitors) one of the most important criteria for future events was its location in a city with regular direct flights and London provided the ideal fit.
Furthermore ExCeL London, which attracts scientific and medical congresses from around the world, presented the ideal venue for exhibitors as it offers modern facilities and a floor plan layout with no pillars.
The 2017 edition of in-cosmetics Global, taking place from the 4-6th April, is expected to attract over 9,000 visitors and 700+ exhibitors across more than 16,000sqm of stand space. An expansive education programme is planned which will feature scientific workshops, marketing trends, technical seminars, interactive formulation lab sessions and live demonstrations.
Cathy Laporte, Exhibition Director for in-cosmetics Global, said “London is a central hub and we look forward to bringing the event back to the UK after 15 years, particularly given the prominence of the UK market for the cosmetics industry.”
“in-cosmetics has enjoyed fantastic growth in recent years” said James Campion, Head of Sales at ExCeL London, “it is a privilege to welcome back this established, world-leading event to the venue which has transformed and grown over the last 15 years.”
